Way Back When

Back in the day, we used to go to casinos and sit in camping chairs and think it was great to come away with $L24 for an hour of doing nothing.

This is my first post here, and since Morgana shared her newbie thoughts already, I'm also tripping down memory lane. What gets me about Second Life is how quickly it came to feel like a second home. The camping chairs? It's a distant memory now and feels like it could have been years ago, but we've only been in SL about 10 weeks.

I have memories of places visited early on that I would be hard pressed to find again, simply because I didn't landmark them and they are just vague scraps of recollection now. Morgana and I have dance clubs and shops that we haven't been to in what seems like months, but there's no way it could be more than a few weeks.

I do remember the day I joined, just a few hours after Morgana did. I wandered around the welcome area, tried out the various tutorials for movement and camera control, and slowly figured out that there was a lot here to explore. Looking back on it now, that day feels like a very long time ago.
